MISSION CAPSULES: Presbyterians Sharing ... supports Michelle Verwey, a Community Health Advisor serving alongside our Church of North India partners in central India. Michelle continues ministry started by Presbyterian missionaries in the early 1900's. Michelle and a committee made up of retired nurses, community leaders and others - including some local members of the church are working together to plan and implement community health projects in the Vindhya-Satpura region. Michelle provides technical advice, encouragement and support as they decide on projects that will make a difference in the community. The work has only just begun, but part of the long-term vision for the Mendha project is to help children finish school and provide adult education in reading, writing and mathematics.
